We live in unprecedented times. On the one hand, it would appear that much goes wrong on the planet. All one needs to do to support this viewpoint is to read the daily newspaper.

On the other hand larger and larger groups of people gather together in peace with the clear intention of transforming the Earth into the peaceful paradise that is her destiny. I urge you to visit the following link to join in world wide meditations for just such a purpose.

In peace,

John Haines


Since time immemorial, human beings on Earth have longed for an idyllic past when all beings, small and great, lived in complete harmony in a place where peace, freedom and love reigned supreme. This mythical place is in fact an archetypical memory of a state of being our souls experience between each lifetime in the physical realm. Some call this ethereal place “Nirvana”, a word that in our culture evokes a state of perfect happiness and absolute bliss. Others call it “Heaven” and in every culture, this invisible realm is said to be where souls go to rest and enjoy the most sublime rewards for their good deeds while in embodiment. It has also been said that humans create their own heaven or hell here on Earth, depending on where the focus of their attention is and what their beliefs are. As fragments of the Omniversal Being at the origin of All That Is, we are each endowed with unimaginably powerful creative powers which can be fully tapped only when we align our little will with the greater will and purpose of life. As living expressions of the Grand Design of Creator Source, we have no reason to remain confined forever by the limiting perception of ourselves as mere mortals whose ultimate fate if to live a brief existence mired in an endless struggle to survive and find a modicum of happiness in a world that is often felt as violent, unpredictable and harsh. We can free ourselves from the self-imposed yoke that prevents us from stretching our wings and flying into the skies of endless freedom and creativity, namely, fear.

To melt away and dissipate fear from our mind, heart and soul, the antidote is simply to let Love be our basic and permanent state of being and sole perspective through which everything is sensed and seen. To fully grasp how simple it is to allow Love to be our guiding beacon in everything, one has only to think of the greatest joys and moments of deepest happiness experienced so far in this lifetime, and invariably one can but come to the conclusion that, each time, Love is what made them possible. The lesson is clear and the path is well marked. Love is the key to manifest Heaven on Earth, to transform our near hopeless situation into a resounding victory over fear, born from the self-destructive sense of separation that pits us against each other. Now its the time to rise above the miasma of our self-inflicted disconnection from the Universal Source of All and to cocreate, through our own metamorphosis, the dream world of ancient lore. Now is the time to let go of our past misconceptions about ourselves and to enable, through our own self-purification, the emergence of the true state of inner peace, unconditional love and perfect harmony that is our innate nature. Now is the time to BE All that We Are.

Joining in meditation with all other souls walking this Golden Path of Light, we are to immerse ourselves during the coming four weeks, and especially at the globally synchronized moments of soul communion every Sunday, in the sense of devotional love that permeates our being when we let the Presence of Creator Source grow in us until we know, while in blissful ecstatic communion, that we are One with and inseparable from All That Is. Reaching out to each other while in that state of perfect Love, we will catalyze and magnify the global transformation now underway that will soon elevate the overall vibratory rate of this planet and of all its inhabitants up to a state of permanent fusion and mutual sentience from which a near miraculous dispensation of Grace will usher in a new Golden Era, thus transducing Heaven on Earth, for the Highest Good of all as One.

Dear Friends, Family and Fans,

Prepare to have your breath taken away! For over two years I have traveled
to many of the world’s most pristine locations—Greenland, Patagonia,
Hawaii, Iceland, Peru, Alaska, The Caribbean, New Zealand, and the Canadian
Rockies—capturing the earth’s beauty in ways that are rarely seen. Inspired by
decades of National Geographic specials, the BBC Planet Earth series and the
majestic beauty of our terrestrial home, Earth Songs gently guides the viewer
on a journey of ageless wisdom, inspiring poetry and stunning footage of
Mother Earth at her finest.

As a first time filmmaker, I was extremely fortunate to have legendary
actor, Michael York (Three Musketeers, Logan’s Run, Cabaret Austin Powers
—Thanks Michael), narrate the documentary for me and equally fortunate to have
Academy Award winning composer Brian Keane arrange the film’s musical score.
Brian also enlisted the help of Ira Spiegel to do sound effects (Brian and
Ira are consider THE “A Team” of Ken and Ric Burns PBS fame) and needless to say, they are now my “A Team” as well. What began as a documentary film
has now become two (2) movies. The first is a 45-minute documentary film,
narrated by renowned actor, Michael York and scored by Brian Keane. The second feature is a relaxing (healing) 55-minute meditation experience through an alchemy of breathtaking scenery set to an enchanting musical score by Grammy Award winning artists including Michael Hoppe, Secret Garden, Brian Keane, Keola Beamer and Craig Armstrong.

Earth Songs was created as a unique relaxation DVD for these troubled times
we are now living. Like Seasons of the Heart, Earth Songs will be made
available to hospitals across the country for in-house cable programming for cancer patients and the chronically ill. And… one dollar from the sale of each DVD will be donated to the American Cancer Society. I am also in the
process of lining up some premier events across the country next year including Omaha, Jacksonville, Columbus, and Boulder (please see my the upcoming events page of my website for more details).
There is also talk about airing Earth Songs on some PBS affiliate…Fingers
crossed on that one!

As so many people who have seen demos and rough cuts have said, “EARTH
SONGS will take your breath away.” You can preview the first chapter for both the documentary and meditation features on links by going to:

• Earth Songs Documentary Introduction

• Earth Songs Meditation (song: Prairie Moon by Michael Hoppe)

• Earth Songs Movie Trailer:

Total Running Time: 105 minutes

Cost: S25.00 (plus S&H) Enclosed is an order form and soon, on my website,
there will be a means to purchase EARTH SONGS through Paypal as well .

Johannesburg-born Colin MacDonald, aka Mac the Knight, has been a professional musician and performer on keyboards, guitar and vocals since 1975. In this musical Voices from the North interview we play five of Colin’s lively swing songs from his album called Time to Shine and we speak about his radio show Diamonds in the Dust.

The five songs we play during the hour are:

All Dressed Up

Savoy Shuffle

Time to Shine

A Million Faces


After finishing school, a year’s national service, a failed attempt at University and various aborted career pathways, he was halfway through a piano craftsman’s apprenticeship when the lure of professional music finally won him over.

A 4-year hiatus to gain an electronics qualification finally convinced him that a 7-5 job in a petrochemical plant was not his ideal, and he set about re-establishing his musical career in earnest. A series of personal ‘emotional learning curves’ provided the impetus for him to finally achieve a long-held ambition of starting to write his own songs.

Colin has gigged with many popular bands in his native South Africa, as well as fronting his band, Mac the Nite, who also released an album of self-penned material and had considerable TV and radio exposure in that country. He has since successfully performed on the UK and European circuit, solo and duo.      

Finally reunited with a long-lost flame from his youth, he moved his life to New Zealand, where he embarked on yet another new career, that of teaching secondary school music.

Finding less and less fulfilment in live gigging, Colin has found a gratifying creative outlet in compiling and presenting a regular one-hour radio program called Diamonds in the Dust, in which he exposes some of his collection of little-known musical treasures, many of which have probably never been broadcast before.

Voices from the North

On December 9, 2009 my special returning guest on Voices from the North was Bob Cooper. For those of you who don’t already know, Bob is a pioneer of home satellite technology. Here’s a link to a Mother Earth News article about Bob written in 1980. He has self-published more than 40 books in the course of his productive life and he’s recently turned novelist of the Portobello trilogy set in the Caribbean (Turks & Caicos Islands), where Bob used to live.

Gutenberg and Printing

During this interview Bob gives an overview of publishing from the time of Johannes Gutenberg (the 42 line Gutenberg Bible) in about 1439 until the present. He ties in our discussion with the findings of Gavin Menzies, author of 1421 and 1434, who claims the Chinese sailed flotillas of 300 ships around the world long before Columbus theoretically discovered the Americas. In fact, Menzies claims Columbus was using Chinese maps to assist his navigation. The Chinese were also printing books with movable type at least as early as AD 900, again long before the supposed invention of Gutenberg’s.

Bob Cooper was simultaneously publishing five magazines circa 1960 when he was in his early twenties. At that time, technology hadn’t advanced much beyond the early printing of Gutenberg. Flats were made for each magazine page from molten lead. Post production, the entire lot was melted down again, ready for the next printing project.

Print on Demand

Espresso Book Machine

Now, fast forward to today. Print on Demand companies like BookSurge (or as they’re now called, CreateSpace) are using fully automated and computerized machines like the Espresso Book Machine. As Bob explains, from the moment Joe Bloggs (from anywhere) places his online order for a POD book, one minute might transpire before the physical book is produced from scratch complete with an address label ready to be posted or couriered to Joe. Presumably, no human hands have been involved to this point. The BookSurge representative is likely calmly sipping a liquid Espresso at the time. There is no need to make an initial print run of, say, 3000 copies. The books are printed as required.

Enter Kindle

Six months ago the publishing industry was again turned on its head with the introduction of Amazon’s Kindle Wirless Reading Device. Again, as Bob says, a vacationer lounging on the beach in Samoa could have a new book uploaded to her Kindle within a minute of placing their order. All they need is access to 3G mobile, something that’s pretty omnipresent today.

So, what are the implications of the rapid technological changes we’re seeing in the publishing world? Only time will tell. But, as Bob Cooper points out in our interview, Barnes and Noble will be closing 200 stores after Christmas and, at the same time, Borders will be virtually (pun intended) no more. Keep your eyes and ears open in 2010. Will you be reading from a machine or from a real book. I’m sticking to the ‘real thing’, and that’s not Coca Cola folks!

Lee Brogan has been publishing the New Zealand edition of Nexus Magazine since the mid 90s. In this inspiring Voices from the North interview Lee speaks on her multifaceted life and the inception of the magazine while she and her partner and young child were living on a sailboat they’d been decking out for seven years. She needed the extra income in order to purchase a mast for the boat.

Lee is passionate about what Nexus stands for and gave examples of stories that influenced her personally (the link between cot deaths and vaccines, for example) and that have led many to make healthy choices and take responsibility for their lives. Nexus has a mission (in the words of editor Duncan Roads from the magazine’s website) ‘to present hard-to-get, ignored and suppressed information on the subjects of health, science, the unexplained, world events and history.  Our goal is the day when all people of all races and colours can live together in total trust and respect, on a planet that is clean, abundant and healthy.’ This is certainly an admirable goal for a magazine. Many of the stories end up in the mainstream media two or three years after they are first published in Nexus. Just two of the topics Lee and I discuss pertaining to health are MMS and Rife technology.

NEXUS Magazine is not affiliated with any political, religious or spiritual groups or organisations whatsoever, and has been published since 1987. The magazine is on sale in shops across Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada, UK, France, Italy, Holland, Greece, Poland, Croatia, Japan, Romania, Serbia and Russia.

Lee Brogan is also a glass artist specialising in original sculpture in cast glass, pate de verre glass, ceramics and mixed media. She utilises lead crystal casting glass, and makes mold-melted or kiln cast glass using the lost-wax method and the ancient Egyptian technique of pate de verre (glass paste) and a range of techniques for hand built ceramic sculpture including raku firing, pit or barrel firing, and unglazed oxidation firing.

Her art is environmentally and politically inspired and she works from her studio at her rural country home in the far north of the North Island of New Zealand on a lifestyle block she shares with her family, partner Paul and their two children. Originally a graphic designer, magazine publisher and commercial artist, she started working in ceramic sculpture and then went on to casting glass, completing a BA in Applied Art in 2007 specialising in sculpture.

“Few men are willing to brave the disapproval of their fellows, the censure of their colleagues, the wrath of their society. Moral courage is a rarer commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence. Yet it is the one essential, vital quality for those who seek to change a world which yields most painfully to change.”

Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence

The Disclosure Project

Steven M. Greer, MD, Director and Founder

Copyright 2009 Steven M. Greer, M.D.

January 23, 2009

Dear President Obama,

Since the mid-1950s, classified projects connected to extraterrestrial matters have operated outside of constitutionally required oversight and control by the President and Congress. This constitutes a grave and ongoing threat to US national security and global security and peace.

The implications of this subject are such that no aspect of life on Earth will be unaffected by its Disclosure. We are acutely aware that this subject is highly controversial and suffers from great social opprobrium within certain elite circles and within the mainstream media.

Indeed, secrecy on the subject has, in part, been maintained by a carefully orchestrated psychological nexus of ridicule, fear, intimidation and disinformation that makes it difficult for any public figure to openly address the matter.

Moreover, the ‘bubble’ of security and access restrictions that surround the Office of the President makes it very difficult for POTUS to receive accurate information and advice on the subject. The consequences of this secrecy, combined with the psychological aspects mentioned above, have ensured that none of your predecessors have been able to effectively manage this problem. This has led to an unacknowledged crisis that will be the greatest of your Presidency.

Because of this misguided secrecy, the wondrous new sciences related to advanced energy generation, propulsion and transportation have been withheld from the people. These advances include the generation of limitless clean energy from the so-called zero point energy field and quantum vacuum flux field from the space around us, and propulsion that has been termed (incorrectly) anti-gravity. The field of electromagnetic energy that is teeming all around us and which is embedded within the fabric of space/time can easily run all of the energy needs of the Earth – without pollution, oil, gas, coal, centralized utilities or nuclear power.

The disclosure of these sciences and their wise application during your first term as President is the most pressing matter before you. These sciences will create a true new energy economy allowing mankind to solve our most pressing problems of global warming, poverty and resource depletion.

The constellation of problems that include global warming, biosphere degradation, air pollution, energy security, Mid-East policy, a collapsing geo-economic order, growing disparity between the poor and rich of the world, over-population and human sustainability on Earth, to name but a few, are all interconnected and directly affected by the secrecy surrounding this subject. The solutions lie not in old thinking and technologies but in a new consciousness applying new sciences. These sciences were born in the late 19th and 20th centuries but were abandoned and suppressed due to the lust for power, greed and out of fear of unsettling the status quo.

It is time for a new Emancipation Declaration – one that frees all of humanity from the shackles of economic slavery that results from secret centralized power, corruption and global economic hegemony. The world will not find justice and peace so long as half of the world’s population lives in poverty while the other half cannibalizes the Earth to maintain its standard of living. This dire situation can and must be transformed into a world of abundance, clean and plentiful energy and genuine sustainability. On this foundation, with these new sciences, technologies and a new consciousness, we can move forward as a people, united and in peace. Then and only then will we be welcome amongst the other civilizations of the cosmos.

That we are not alone in the universe is now a scientific given. That we have been visited already by advanced civilizations – whose interests here are likely ancient – is controversial. However, in my discussions with European, Vatican, Canadian and other leaders around the world, a growing consensus exists that we have been visited and the time for disclosing this information is long past due. More importantly, an appropriate diplomatic initiative is needed to communicate with these extraterrestrial visitors within a framework of universal peace, free from the past dominance of militarism and paranoia.

Insofar as upwards of 80% of the American people think that ‘UFOs’ are real, and that some aspect of the government is lying to them about it, continued secrecy redounds only to the benefit of the precious few who profit from such secrecy. This secrecy undermines the credibility of the US and other governments, and allows the cancer of unchecked covert power – forewarned by President Eisenhower in his last address to the nation – to metastasize throughout the world. It now threatens the very life of Earth.

Moreover, there exists a secret, ‘unacknowledged’ operation that has used very advanced electromagnetic weapon systems to track, target, and on occasion, but with increasing accuracy, down extraterrestrial vehicles. This reckless behavior constitutes an existential threat to all of mankind and must be reined in immediately.

The so-called MJ-12 or Majestic group that controls this subject operates without the consent of the people, or the oversight of the President and Congress. It functions as a transnational government unto itself, answerable to no one. All checks and balances have been obliterated. While as a governing entity it stands outside of the rule of law, its influence reaches into many governments, corporations, agencies, media and financial interests. Its corrupting influence is profound and, indeed, it has operated as a very powerful and embedded global RICO whose power to date remains unchecked.

Upwards of $100 billion of USG funds go annually into this operation, also known as the ‘black budget’ of the United States – enough to provide universal health care to every man, woman and child in America.

When I first briefed Director of Central Intelligence James Woolsey on this matter in December of 1993, only a third of this governing group was in favor of what we were recommending: Disclosure of the fact that we are not alone in the universe and the careful release of advanced energy generation systems that would replace oil, gas, coal and nuclear power. Sources now inform me that upwards of two-thirds of this group now support such an initiative.

Interests in Europe, the Vatican and Asia, especially France and China, are urging Disclosure. If the United States does not move forward, these other interests will, and America will be left behind and become increasingly irrelevant in the world. This cannot be allowed to happen.

The European and Asian arenas will move with or without US involvement at some point in the very near future, as well they should. Six decades of secrecy is enough.

We are also morally obliged to warn you of an existing highly secretive plan to use advanced technologies to hoax an ‘alien attack’ on Earth. There exists within the direct control of this Majestic group assets capable of launching such a false flag operation and virtually every person on Earth, as well as most leaders, would be deceived by it. Components of this operation have been tested on the public over the past 50 years and include, but are not limited to:

  • Alien Reproduction Vehicles (ARVs) – these are advanced anti-gravity aircraft that have been fully operational since at least the late 1950s to early 1960s. Many so-called UFO reports by civilians and military personnel are of such ARVs. They constitute an unacknowledged or ‘black’ Air Force and these ARVs are capable of extraordinary speed, maneuverability and lift/hover. By 2009, these technologies had gone through many generations of refinement and, if deployed, could easily hoax or simulate an Extraterrestrial Vehicle (ETV). (Note that a UFO is a nonspecific term and could be either an ARV or an ETV.)
  • Programmed Life Forms (PLFs) – these are well-crafted alien-appearing creatures that, while completely manmade, often deceive unknowing people as ‘aliens’. The stagecraft, genetics and other sciences associated with these creatures are beyond the scope of this brief, but are very well developed. I have personally been briefed by multiple independent corroborating sources regarding the development and deployment of PLFs. These creatures, used in conjunction with ARVs, have convincingly launched the pop culture fervor over ‘alien abductions’. Victims of such paramilitary human-controlled abductions genuinely believe that they have been abducted by ‘aliens’ and often have physical stigmata and ‘implants’ to prove it. These implants are also manmade and we have information about the laboratory and corporation making these items. (See attached documents)
  • Chemical, optical and electromagnetic systems to assist with creating an alteration in awareness are components of the ‘stagecraft’ used to hoax an ‘alien’ event.

The vast majority of information in the public domain on the UFO subject is, therefore, carefully orchestrated disinformation designed to prepare the populace, as well as our leaders, for a non-existent ‘alien threat’. The psychological warfare implications of this were described in the 1950s in CIA documents and are further elucidated by other documents and testimony. No less a figure than Wernher Von Braun warned of this cosmic deception.

The objective of such a false flag operation is the creation of an enemy in space that would unite the world behind a global military power against such an ‘alien threat’. President Reagan and other leaders have been targeted with such disinformation, which is designed to secure their silence or cooperation with the agenda of secrecy and space weaponization. The President needs to be careful to avoid being similarly deceived.

After very careful review of all data and documents and after interviewing hundreds of top secret witnesses, we have concluded that the actual extraterrestrial presence is distinctly non-hostile. In light of the reckless and aggressive nature of many of our covert military actions and the extraordinarily advanced technologies that permit interstellar travel by these extraterrestrial civilizations, if they were hostile, human civilization would have been dealt with decisively at the dawn of the nuclear era.

These visitors, however, appear to be very concerned with unchecked human hostility, war-making and weapons of mass destruction, combined with our early potential for space travel. The tendency for people to engage in anthropocentric projection leads many to assume a threat where none exists. It is more likely that humanity may be seen as a threat to the cosmic order, insofar as we have failed to restrain the expansion of weapons of mass destruction while attempting to push farther and farther into space. Moreover, we have failed to initiate an enlightened and peaceful diplomatic mission to these extraterrestrial visitors. This needs to change immediately.

Disclosure of this subject must be very carefully planned and positioned as a hopeful and elevating moment in human history. A poorly positioned Disclosure that demonizes these visitors or frightens the public may prove more harmful than secrecy.

As you may know, my uncle was the senior project engineer who worked on the Lunar Module that took Neil Armstrong to the moon. The reason we were not welcome in space then is because the passport to traverse the universe is a stable peaceful world civilization that will go into space united and in peace.

In this regard, world peace and universal peace are two sides of the same coin. Once we vow to live peacefully on Earth and go into space only in peace, we will be welcome with open arms. Until then, a type of cosmic quarantine exists – rightly – around the Earth.

Unfortunately, the media and movie industry are highly penetrated by interests loyal to the Majestic group, which has used the media to, in turns, ridicule the subject and present terrifying images of ‘alien invasion’. In short, the populace is almost thoroughly brainwashed on the matter, and this presents a further hurdle that must be carefully taken into account when planning Disclosure.

Nevertheless, the status quo can no longer hold and fundamental change is urgently needed. To this end, we urge the President to undertake a number of initiatives as soon as possible. We recommend that the President:

  • Appoint a Special Presidential Task Force to investigate this matter, identify covert facilities and assets (see attached summary) and reassert Executive control over these projects;
  • Identify and immediately stand-down operations that are covertly targeting Extraterrestrial Vehicles, weaponizing space and engaging in rogue disinformation projects;
  • Develop response plans to minimize the risks related to potential false flag operations that intend to hoax a hostile ‘alien’ presence, including preparations with military, intelligence and international institutions;
  • Form The Council on Interplanetary Relations to coordinate a peaceful, forward looking and non-militarized response to the extraterrestrial presence. The Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence (see has an 18 year ongoing project to establish such contact and can assist with this process. CSETI, working with other governments and world figures, will form such a Council if the US government decides not to do so within the next 12 months;
  • Immediately fund the study, development and careful release of those new energy technologies that can quickly replace fossil fuels and nuclear power. (See Note that these technologies, since they acquire energy from the zero point energy field of space/time, will allow for the retirement of the electric energy grid. We are in possession of documents and information regarding key facilities and assets connected to these technologies (see attached documents). We recommend that the propulsion and transportation aspects of these technologies (electro-magneto-gravitic systems) be released at a later time when the world security situation has improved;
  • Establish high-ranking liaisons with Congress, the UN and other governments to coordinate these projects and the release of the new energy technologies;
  • The National Security Council needs to form a section specifically addressing the international, interplanetary and macroeconomic implications of this disclosure and urgently prepare for the release of these technologies;

The Orion Project ( has identified key scientists to assist with the development of these new energy technologies. They have agreed to work with us, but are being prevented from doing so, one by a compartmented operation (TS SCI) to which he is assigned. We request an action by the Office of the President to specifically permit them to work with us with the full support and protection of the President. We cannot over-emphasize how important it is that these people be assigned to this critical task: In less than 1 year, we would have new energy generators developed to run America free from oil, gas, coal or nuclear power.

President Obama, we stand ready to assist you and your Administration with these and other tasks, and pledge to you our full support. I will personally fulfill any request from your office with the utmost integrity, discretion and confidentiality.

Please be assured of my heartfelt prayers on your behalf for your guidance, protection and success as you begin your historic role as President of the United States.

Crab Apple Blossoms

If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, ‘thank you,’ that would suffice.

Meister Eckhart

During an early walk in the mist this morning I ran into a friend; not literally, visibility was better than that! He lives in Auckland and owns a little seaside house here. He only visits from time to time. I hadn’t seen him for months. He said, “I heard you have to leave the house you’re in.”

“Yes,” I said. “The owners are returning from the Middle East in August next year.”

“That must be sad,” he commiserated.

“I’m grateful. This is already the longest we’ve ever been in one place, including the houses we’ve owned. There is only a twinge of regret because of all the trees I’ve planted and all the work I’ve done to improve the garden. But that’s what I do everywhere we live. I planted a thousand bulbs at our last rental house in Holland. We only lived there for a year and a half.”

Oak Sapling

My friend’s response: “That reminds me of the story of the elderly Taoist who was planting a little oak tree. A neighbour saw him as she passed and said, ‘Old man, do you know you won’t have a chance to see that tree grow?’

‘Yes,’ he replied with a contented smile. ‘I know.’”

Did you plant the crab apple tree that blooms every spring at the end of your lane? Does it matter who planted it? We each get to enjoy the beauty others create. Breathing in. Breathing out. Giving and receiving. It’s all a continuum. So plant a tree if you can. You never know how much joy that one simple act may later give others.

Enjoy this creation.
